Train-the-Trainer Workshops

Instructors who have reviewed the Guide to Presenting and seek additional guidance in using the curriculum may wish to consider attending a train-the-trainer workshop.

Train-the-Trainer sessions are offered via regularly scheduled webinars and can be viewed on Training and Events. You must register in advance to participate.

Some Train-the-Trainer workshops are conducted in person to help participants learn how to use Money Smart through the use of presentations, demonstrations, and exercises. These workshops are held for financial institutions, community organizations, and other entities that plan to use Money Smart. The Train-the-Trainer workshops provide guidance to the lead trainers at these organizations. These lead trainers, in turn, conduct workshops for additional instructors or provide training to consumers. Workshops can be conducted for groups of at least 25 potential instructors.

A How to Guide: Train-the-Trainer Resource CD

The FDIC offers a CD with useful resources for organizations that conduct their own Train-the-Trainer workshops. FDIC’s Train-the-Trainer (in-a-box) Resources CD gives instructors worksheets, activities, and other materials that can be used to administer Train-the-Trainer workshops. The CD includes guidance on how to use these materials to train a group of instructors. Order the CD (catalog.fdic.gov).
